This is mostly about games, lazer guns and robots. If you are offended by stupid, immature, sexist, moronic, perverted and/or nerd humor you should probably leave. Maybe kill yourself.

Watch A Girl Grow From Zero To 14 In Four Minutes

Dutch photographer Frans Hofmeester released the latest montage of his 14-year-old daughter, whom he’s filmed every week since birth, and it’s both delightful and heart-wrenching.

Andy Hertzfeld on Susan Kare:

One day, I came over to her cubicle to see what she was working on, and I was surprised to see her laboring over a tiny icon portrait of Steve Jobs.
Icons were only 32 by 32 black or white pixels, 1024 dots in total, and I didn’t think it was possible to do a very good portrait in that tiny a space, but somehow Susan had succeeded in crafting an instantly recognizable likeness with a mischevious grin that captured a lot of Steve’s personality. Everyone she showed it to liked it, even Steve himself.

Via Priceonomics’ in-depth look at Kare, definitely worth the read.

Pixel power.

I made the graphics for this Commodore 64 demo 21-22 years ago. Crazy, I’m that old.

  • DECK OFFICER: Sir, the temperature’s dropping too rapidly.
  • HAN: That’s right. And my friends out in it.
  • ASSISTANT OFFICER: I’ll cover sector twelve. Have com-control set screen alpha.
  • DECK OFFICER: Your Tauntaun’ll freeze before you reach the first marker.
  • HAN: Then I’ll see you in hell!
